When I transferred to Plano Senior High School, it felt as if I was at home. PSHS is a heart-warming community of students and faculty that make you feel like family. I went to 3 other High Schools before PSHS and I just didn't feel that kind of atmosphere. It is a very good academically challenged school and the Diversity there made me even more comfortable to be at a school and made me welcomed. There isn't a race that dominates any other and majority of the school get's along like family with all the ups and downs. The campus is formed and shaped just like a College/University campus, so it mentally prepares students on what they will be expecting at a College/University atmosphere. Along with the College like atmosphere, the on-campus events that go around campus makes Plano Senior High School a fun High School to be at where you can feel comfortable!

PSHS honestly was a great experience for me because it slightly introduced me to what life will be in college. With a huge open campus, new driving privileges, and the ability to delegate your school schedule, it was a refreshing experience versus what I went through the past 10 years in grade school. MOST teachers were enjoyable and did a fantastic job teaching, however there were some who made going to school a drag. The food on campus wasn't that good, so most of us went off campus for lunch which was always a great time. Lots of opportunities in education, pinnacle school spirit, and a great band!
I loved Plano Senior HS! It was definitely a typical high school experience, it’s just the matter of finding the electives you’re interested in and finding people that you love that make it an amazing experience. Not only academically, but also spiritually did PSHS excel; I never failed to have challenging teachers, but also caring and uplifting teachers. I miss my high school experience so much, and it was definitely worth all the hard work to get there!
